In South America alone we have driven over a quarter of a million kilometres and as such have extensive knowledge of routes and destinations as well as the people and their cultures. Before beginning Viva Expeditions we worked for many years running tours, working as tour leaders and guides in South America as well as travelling independently to the furthermost reaches of the continent. This is the knowledge that enables us to create unique and exciting, well thought out itineraries. Viva Expeditions was born from our love of South America, our passion for its people, its culture and its landscapes combined with our desire to make South America and all its beauty and mystery accessible to keen travellers who desire a few more creature comforts and quality experiences that what has previously been on offer. We provide excellent value for money as well as a safe, fun and adventurous atmosphere in which to discover Latin America. We believe it is the little things that make a big difference and as such strive to go that extra mile for each and every one of our wonderful passengers. Due to the amount of time we have spent and continue to spend in Latin America we know all of suppliers, local operators and other contacts in person. We have formed many great and long lasting friendships with people from all walks of life. It is these friendships that enable us to be the best we can be. They share with us their knowledge and experience and offer their ideas and support, they have welcomed us into their homes and their families, and through them we have learnt about the true spirit of South America. This spirit is reflected in all of our tours. We are not offering only a trip to visit the main tourist sites, we are offering a glimpse as a different world, filled with many wonderful people and many fascinating cultures. Our team of handpicked guides, tour managers, drivers, consultants, local operators and many others share our passion for South America and our common goal which is to provide mature yet adventurous travellers with active, exciting, safe and great value for money travel options in South America. We hope your journey with us will delight and inspire you and look forward to sharing these experiences with you in South America.
